I think one thing we should do, maybe not this year but the next is to switch back to a base 4-3 defense. One of my problems with the 3-4 is that is needs three special, hard to find and costly players. The NT, and two pass rushing OLB's. Cam Wake only has one pass rush move, the low speed one. Jason Taylor is going to retire and K Misi is not a 3-4 OLB at all. Right now we only have 2 and 1/2 of these 3 special players and JT will be retiring soon. Most NTs like ours, are almost useless on passing downs. More and more NFL teams have went to the 3-4 in the last couple of years partly because it is a copy cat league. But it has made finding those 3 special players harder to find and more expensive to own. The 3-4 is good against the run but unless you have two top pass rushing OLBs it is weak against the pass. We should trade away P Soliai for a high draft pick or...a QB, young DE, a good young corner etc etc. Langford, Starks, Odrick, Merling and even Igor would make good 4-3 DTs who could be rotated. All of them could play a NT in a 3-3-5 etc. We could play Wake and Taylor back at their natural DE positions. We need to work a 10 man DL rotation like Saban used to do. We used to wear down opposing OLs. Misi would also now be a DE or a simple OLB. No more trying to force a good college defensive end into being a 3-4 OLB. We need to stop trying to find and then beat square pegs into round holes. No more needing Wake and Taylor to make all our sacks. Right now we almost totally depend on them for sacks. Now we could have four DLs, 3 LBs and a couple of DBs who can reach the QB from their positions. Langford, Starks, Odrick, Merling etc might be slow as DEs but they have good speed for DTs. And of course, we can always zone blitz and/or blitz one or more LBs along with the 4 DL. Taylor and Wake would be great at zone blitzes. You can say that we really need to add another faster 4-3 defensive end but I'd counter that we also need a new 3-4 OLB. I think a good 4-3 DE is easier to find then a 3-4 OLB is. The other massive change we need to make is in the secondary. We drafted two good corners and we thought we were done, one reason being that our defense is stuck in the 1990's. We need at least 3 "starting corners" and some safeties who can pass cover. Right now we cannot handle a team that have a good pass catching TE and can go 3 wide. We need to adjust.
